all you have to do is add a crinoline skirt and that will give you the fullness you want out of your skirt without the heaviness. sounds like you are paying extra $$ for crinoline & you did stated you didnt like the heaviness of the gown. you can go to you local davids bridal(klienfields might charge you $$$ for the same thing) and get them for cheap and the should have 3 types of fullness. even if you choose the fullest skirt its not going to weigh you down at all. also make sure to bring your petticoat (crinoline skirt) and shoes to your fitting. the petticoat and the shoes will drastically change your hem.

Do you have pics of your dress? It can’t be that droopy and lifeless if you loved when you tried it on! I second the opinion of adding crinoline. I also remember a post where a Bee mentioned she had the Marina and she had strap marks on her shoulders at the end of the night from the weight of the dress, and also she had a hard time fitting through narrow doors. You may just have bought the perfect dress, at a lower price, without the difficulties.

And actually I got my story wrong. She said the hanger broke from the weight of the dress, so she added straps, which left marks on her shoulders. At least I’m pretty sure that was it πŸ™‚

I must add, I just saw your pic and I think it looks gorgeous.

I love the dress!  I agree that you could add the crinoline if you like the volume, but I found when I was trying on dresses that I liked volume in the pictures, but not on me.  

If your dress is cheaper and lighter, even better…

i think your dress looks really pretty and unique. it’s got that vintage flare that i love πŸ™‚ you’ve made the right choice. why pay more when you can get the same thing by adding a crinoline?

it would be safer to buy the petticoat @ davids or at any store. i wouldnt  buy on the net. because you dont know how its going to look with your dress. i would wait till you dress comes in. take the dress with you to davids or any other bridal salon and try on the different fullness of petticoats with your dress. the crinoline on the petticoat starts a little above your knee and make sure to tie it around your natural waist. if you have kleinfields add crinoline onto the dress, they have to sew it on one by one and thats going to cost $$$ if you’re trying to save money.

i saw your second pic. its looks lifeless because its not your size and its pulled in a lot with the clips; almost half of the dress is gone lol. if you were that size it would look like the pic.Wink

Don’t panic! Wait until your dress comes in and then take that good photo to your seamstress. Seamstresses are like magicians – she will work with your dress to make it exactly how you want it. My dress was Michelle Roth Margot, and it was wonderful. You’re going to love your dress in the end!

Omg, I love this dress! The Marina was my dream wedding dress but unfortunately I had a strict 1.5K dress budget. I think the Maragret looks beautiful on you, if anything, maybe wear a petticoat underneath? I think going with the Margaret was wise, becuse I also heard about how heavy the Marina was.

All you need is a crinoline!

And, don’t go to davids! They are so overpriced there! Check Ebay, Craigslist, and the WB classifieds. You can get them really cheap.

I’m debating getting one for mine just to help keep my feet clear, and I’ll probably use Ebay.
